Manchester City's resurgence at The Hawthorns provided the platform for Joe Yusof's 132 points, as he stormed to the top of the Gameweek 10 Fantasy Premier League rankings.

Joe, from Malaysia, put trust in Sergio Aguero (£13.1m) in a selection that was to pay huge dividends.

With the captain's armband in place, the Argentinian's two goals contributed 36 points a 132-point total. 


Aguero had only arrived in Joe’s squad in Gameweek 8, when he transferred out Middlesbrough's Alvaro Negredo (£6.3m).

Ilkay Gundogan's (£5.5m) contribution was also huge.

The German's craft and ruthless finishing matched Aguero’s two goals and single assist, justifying yet another of Joe's recent transfers having been acquired back in Gameweek 6. 

Elsewhere, Chelsea duo Eden Hazard (£9.9m) and Diego Costa (£10.4m) totalled a combined 21 points in a popular 3-4-3 formation for the FPL manager.

Both have been mainstays in Joe's squad, retaining their spots since Gameweek 1. With the Blues' revival over the last four fixtures, they are now repaying that faith.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez (£11.4m) and Everton's Romelu Lukaku (£9.8m) also played major roles, contributing 13 and 12-point returns respectively.

But it is Joe's defensive deals that really catch the eye.

He drafted in Middlesbrough's Ben Gibson (£4.6m) to replace Manchester United's Luke Shaw (£5.4m) in Gameweeek 8, and back-to-back clean sheets have fully justified that decision.

Arguably, the move for Watford's Sebastian Prodl (£4.5m) was even more astute.

Replacing Leicester City's Wes Morgan (£5.0m), the Watford defender's nine-point contribution in the win over Hull City was another contributing factor to Joe's Gameweek glory.

Gibson and Prodl, with ownerships of just 4.5% and 0.3% respectively, sat alongside Everton’s Ashley Williams (£5.1m) and in front of Burnley’s Tom Heaton (£4.7m) in goal. 

For the first time since Gameweek 1, the Manager of the Week prize was captured without a chip in play.

Joe's 132-point tally boosted him to an overall rank of 7,818, on target for a best ever FPL finish in his fifth campaign.

But things could have been even better.

The decision to keep Joe Allen (£5.2m) on the bench for the Gameweek finale on Monday night proved a rare oversight.

With Etienne Capoue's (£5.1m) modest three points in his midfield, Joe missed out on the Stoke City man's 10-point return against former club Swansea City.
